2:00 am
important and i appreciate i & commission appreciates the fire marshal putting those together so like to put that out there. finally, i see on the back page of your report that you did 16 elevator rescues this past month, so i guess was that practice run for visit by ben carson? >> i doubt it, but it could be. >> thank you very much. >> thank you, president cleveland. >> madam secretary would you call the next item. ? >> item 8, commission report. report on commission actirfbties since last meeting of march 22, 2017, including vice president nakajo's recent ride along with station 49 ambulance crew. >> mr. vise president. >> mr. president, commissioners, chief hayes-white, command staff, i had a ride along the
2:01 am
opportunity in the privilege doing a ride along of march 24, friday. i want to acknowledge chief gonzalez, but also wanted to acknowledge chief [inaudible] met me at the station, station 49. part of that was the desire by this commission to ride on a friday night which is usually a hot night. the intention is go from 4 a.m. to about 1 a.m. and pooped out about eleven p.m. discouraged and disaopponented in myself i didn't stay long frr the hot time. i had the privilege riding with medic 79 with paramedic chris couch and emt leslie fong. we left the station at about 5 o'clock. commissioners i encourage all
2:02 am
you to take a site visit to station 49 and have the chief show what the layout is. again, being a commissioner of some years, station 49 changed quite a bit. there are and a squads used to be there and closing depot is there but there is modifications of the members and room and dispatch room and a ride along like that is invaluable. valuable in terms of getting a first pond point of view what goes on. i had a opportunity with the chief to go through the load up where there is a store keeper and the chief can explain it better at some other point of when the ambulances come in and get loaded up with the various medication and equipment. last time i visited there wasn't such a thing as a personnel person called a store keeper, that is designated job to make sure all this equipment is
2:03 am
ready for the ambulance. : colleagues and chief, the point of this commissioner is not only to observe what is going on with a ride along but also all the other component in terms of again what your report reflected chief gonzalez on all the factors it takes for us to get our men and women out in the field to provide the servicess for the public and the amount of time it takes to do every segment. that load up by the store keeper is a very efficient system. i had the privilege riding with two women professionals and i was greatly impressed with that. the paramedic was about i believe a 5 to 6 year member. the emt member was new, relatively after not even a year. but the dedication and the comments that may made really really made me very very happy. they
2:04 am
both talked about their jobs being their dream jobs. the position they want to be in. that swing shift is the shift that they want to be in. their expertise and passion, their commitment. i'm looking for sensitivity and professionalism and all of that is there. what good about a ride along at station 49 is you interact with a lot of the members who are there. i think it is so important for the members of 49, all the members in the department to see the commissioner come out to the stations to the workplace. we went on our ride, again rapid deplayment so asked the coverage area and it is the mission, sirfbic and downtown. that is a hot corridor. i have been on ride alongs previously and been exposed to what occurs there. part of this as well is
2:05 am
justification of other components like ems 6 and creation of ems 6 to do the frequent fliers take up so much time of our membership and still give the quality. part of this is the president and myself visited the emergency management communication on march 1, so for us the research for the commission is not only at the communication center, but it is at station 49. it also obvious we are observing the condition of the ambulances, our trucks being able to expose with the various membership. we wnt out rapid deployment. didn't take long to get our first call. it is really great to see the cooperation between our departments and this particular instance of the first call i'm not going into detail, we were requested to have truck engine
2:06 am
1 accompany to a site on mission street near the jewish museum and this particular call was a patient that got out of the hospital but needed to make sure we had enough personnel if there was a case of taking the patient out to the ambulance there may be assistance, but it is important for us to see how the mechanics work as well. it is great to see the members of the engine come and see the commissioner work wg the paramedics. interesting enough, nobody was surprised. everybody was delighted to have the commissioner there as well and it became quite obvious as i road the ambulance through the night i would see the crew from station one quite freck wntly. that is where the action is. the other calls were again familiar calls. individuals
2:07 am
on the streets of san francisco, in the mission complaints coming in from citizens, complaints from businesses and individual out there on the street with various conditioning and as we roll up i am informed the san francisco police department will be there as well to make sure the area is secure because i concern myself with the safety of our members as well. not making any kind of comment, but riding with two women personnel going to a incident that might have some action or occasion to be able to have the san francisco police department there as well and our engine response is quite comforting. all professional being able to do with it. the justification of ems becomes really clear because that evening with all our calls we wind up at st. francis hospital. part of our research was known in the communication in station 49 and
2:08 am
the crews but at some point the hospital council. very pleased chief in your report there is a inication that you will meet with the hospital council personnel in terms of that discharge that we identified. again, i walk in there with a point of view but have to quickly erase that point of view. i foupd the staff and nurses at st. frances to be very professionalism very very sensitive. it is difficult especially with 2 or 3 gurn asian and patients. one person may screen and another yelling another may be escorted out of the hospital. there is object so much protocol the hospital and do and so much we can do but do our job and bring the patient to the hospital. the hospitals take care of them and look over them for medical situation but at some point or another that same patient as i observed before is someone we
2:09 am
see again through it continuing evening. i just wanted to say again that i want to acknowledge those personnel at station 49. again commissioners, colleagues, mr. president, with your advocacy of a new station of the paramedic station 49, the bond issue it is so clear to me that we need to have that established for us to move forward in terms of continuing services. it was just interesting because things like when we to eat something we all wound up at whole foods picking food off the shelf. when it came to my necessity to viz sit the restroom we had to go to st. francis hospitalism i know there is a policy we can go to any station, but i found that st. francis hospital with the ability to take advantage
2:10 am
of what they have there was an advantage but it reinforced to me the importance of station 49 and importance the men and women out there in rapid deployment that work the long hours and have basis for nurseishment and hygiene. that is pretty much what i want today report to you. i know that the chief zanic would be more than happy to have us come down and do a aboveation or ride along and thank you very much for your time. >> thank you, mr. vise president. any public comment on this item? seeing none, commissioner hardeman. >> they are doing commission comments so i thought i would jump in, mr. president. i was fortunate to be invited to a presentation of nert and
2:11 am
actually our dog, vander, our rescue dog vander with eli thomas the former cao bill lee and wife carolyn were responsible putting together a community outreach for community leaders to then intern get people vaurfbed in nert. bill and i personal friend so he mentioned it as vandser was coming the dog and eli thomas and captain-her last name-- >> art sairo. >> captain art sairo was there. my wife and i both went but it fts a wonderful presentation. the start of the show was the dog and eli thomas who had just made a presentation to us at our last meeting so interesting
2:12 am
to see him again and much more relaxed frame of line and stood up there for half hour 45 minutes talking-everybody could care less about the nert program, they were interested in the erision relationship with the dog and family. it was wonnerful. it was at gander hall which is a indsian hall as in next to pakistan, that indian not american indian and it was a wonderful experience. delighted i was able to go and so happy had a nice handout and erica explained how responses nert and emergency so it was terrific. while i have the floor, i have to bring up joe [inaudible] and his wonderful mother angela [inaudible] who just left. anyway, she was here up until recently.
2:13 am
anyway, your family the alioato family i met three people in my life that i think defined charisma. i cant think of a forth. john kennedy, bill clinton and joe alioato. and there is something spelths. i was at a dinner when he was raising money for catholic charities and he was the cyo person of the year and i had took jack hening who was under bill clinton, he was-under john kennedy, the secretary of labor and became a bachelor in new zeal end. before that the head for jerry brown in california and in the 70's head of labor. the california-the greatest knowledge of irish history of any person i ever met and could quote thijs at dinners and
2:14 am
everything, so i drove him to it dinner because he didn't live far from me and on the way back i says, do you believe that speech that joe gave? everybody in the room was just up and clapping and screaming and no notes. jack heny who went to st. marry's college he said here is jack kennedy knew all the president from going back in his life. one the smartest guys, recognizes just a master in anything he did, was the editor of the newspaper in st. mary's. he says he is the smartest man i met in my life so you have real ground to cover to keep up with your grandpa. it will be hard to call you commissioner without saying alioato first. i will
2:15 am
be like commissioner cleveland and say commissioner alioato. welcome aboard and you did a presentation to the room because we were ready earlier to the people in the room about yourself, but president cleveland is it appropriate to give background like he did? people watching on tv. >> if you like to reintroduce yourself to the audience. >> thank you, i promise to disappoint you given that the pedestal-i had great respect for my grantfather and when i appeared in cort time to time introduced as joe [inaudible] but the judges called me mr. alioato so used to it. listen, i really appreciate mayor lee aopponenting me to this commission. as i mentioned prior to the people that are here, i come from a long history of public service in

2:17 am
sanity as she heard me leave the house at 3 o'clock in the morning to go to a call. but also after being on the reserves for the city, i joined the san francisco district attorneys office as a law enforcement officer as a district attorney investigator into the hal nan administration and as a da i worked on the streets in san francisco in the mission and tndser line in charge of the paper food stamps that were traded for narcotics and gun. interact would the fire department and as a child my grandfather took us to the fire station, a huge fan of the fire foickters. he said the fire fightererize the only ones that can come to your house, douse with water and thank them on the way out. the fire fighter cz do no harm, what

2:20 am
board. thank you vise president nakajo for taking the ride along. i think most people know that 70 percent or more of our 911 calls are medical emergency so it is ambulances that respond and it is super important that the service that they do is on a regular basis honored and i'm delighted to hear our new chief of the ems is doing weekly ride alongs. just understand what the rank and file are doing every day, i thij that great and appreciate you doing that. and i urge all the commissioners to do ride alongs. i have done one bhieself and probably due for another soon. our newest commissioner it is a lot of work on the commission so want you to understand that there is a lot on our plate, so we absolutely welcome you to this

2:26 am
responsibility of that regular calendar. if the commissioners feel otherwise, i can beope toon that, it is just we didn't have a quorum number before with the consideration that some members will be committed elsewhere on that date. >> thank you, mr. vise president. commissioner hardeman. >> yes, mr. president. i never been involve in canceling a meeting because of lack of quorum because we don't do that. was surprised to hear we did it this time but having 4 commissioners we had no choice, two could want be here. i say commissioner alioato availability may be in question because he was told-you are available. then i would think that we don't cancel meetings because of lack of quorum on this commission since i have been on this 6 and a half years. >> that is my vote. >> thank you, we will check
2:27 am
with council. can we readvertise the meeting as being held? >> yes, president cleveland. city attorneys office wow can renotice the meeting. >> alright, then i think i don't know if we need a motion but the sentiment of the commission is hold the meeting on the 26 so well not have a canceled meeting and vice president nakajo will be the presiding officer for that meeting. >> okay. >> thank you. yes, commissioner covington. >> one final word, yes. i will be traveling at that time, but i am scheduled to be back the morning of the meeting since we have the afternoon meeting, but air travel being what it is these days i'm glad that we will have three commissioners here. >> we could have 4 commissioner

citywide requirement more affordable housing for my neighborhood is completely insane the situation is way, way worse than the citywide requirement was instituted and pulling back instead of moving forward will be as insane as cutting back on climate action at a time things are a new level of bad if we think that our action at the federal level is counterproductive the same thing it true in the housing policy in san francisco we need more affordable housing than we have by such a magnitude whatever policies instituted will not be enough so we need to be aggressive and be here kabul for more affordable housing unless the policies with the city and county of san francisco results in all of us forced out of the city that is one unhappy way

3:21 am
good afternoon supervisors. thank you for the time to speak i'm interfering our live in the excelsior district 11 lived there too years but before that over a decade on las vegas worst in an sro a graduate from usf and recently got married and want to make san francisco my home we're - and my colleagues here to demand affordable housing other than the proposal that supervisor president london breed has put forwarded we demand that those requirements are affordable to the people that live here families and the people that want to live here not affordable to developers we support this continuance and we urge that supervisors and london breed take the time along with the planning commission to
3:22 am
reach out to the community to see what the needs of people actually are and any requirement we demand that is in addition to the citywide requirement not a proposal that takes away from the low income constituents and citizens of this city and gives it away to hire wage earns we want affordable housing more affordable housing not less thank you. >> thank you, sir. >> next speaker. >> good afternoon my name is alison i'm a parent in the fillmore i support this continuance and i hope that commissioner london breed will in fact, meet with the community during this period to uphold her promise she'll increase the highest level of affordable housing in the city

not the insulting low level of unit thank you. >> hi, i'm renee a resident of district 5 for 20 years and support the continuance and hope that land use and transportation committee along with clooepd e london breed will create a legislation that works for san francisco we don't have a housing crisis we have a crisis of affordability not follow world hunger by opening up businesses and restaurant not solve the housing affordability crisis with a bunch of luxury housing thanks. >> thank you good afternoon, supervisors my name is laparoroan a senior will in the fillmore for years i
3:24 am
would right across the street if the proposal at 650 direct examination i support the continuation very much we need to have the larger discussion about the inclusionary incentives the corridors program should match the inclusionary percentages and in fact, be higher because more density is also for the developers in addition, i sense that the i sent the supervisor an e-mail over the weekend proposing solutions regarding the ami the discussion of neighborhoods ami i think that is a way out to have have your cake and eat it too hope you give that consideration. >> thank you. >> good afternoon, supervisors my name is lisa i'm a resident of panhandle and have been for
3:25 am
neither here nor there 3 decades i'm frustrate by today's continuance i took time off of work i'll say i support the continuance if it means we can try to improve supervisor breed legislation and i just, you know, i think there is a solution here and we need your help as members of land use and transportation and as supervisors we need our very own supervisors help because there is truly a crisis of affordability for people making one hundred or 50 thousand a year not enough housing you've heard people see is that over and over what if we came together and came up with a plan and compromised that would be something not sitting through listens and listens of people
3:26 am
commenting and warrior and fretting thank you for the opportunity to speak with you, please move to continue the legislation and we hope we can meet with our supervisor she ran on the the promise of affordable housing and many elected her believing that and that remains to be seen thank you. >> (clapping.) >> thank you. next speaker. >> good afternoon. my name is deirdre i live in the neighborhood and been here thirty years i support the continuance for more dialogue and hopefully, a good compromise for a win-win situation for both sides i like the idea of affordable housing especially for people that work in san francisco like our police people can our fire people and especially our educators that p they need a
3:27 am
place to live and work in san francisco thank you. >> thank you, ma'am. >> next speaker, please. >> good afternoon, supervisors testing from the penalty residents i support having for discussion with commissioner london breed and the community probably involving planning i'd like to point out that the last time that we requested a community meeting with our supervisor about this project and other projects somehow we didn't get the notice about the meeting so i'm respectfully asking the chief of staff to make sure to conclude all the people in noticing thank you. >> (clapping.) >> good afternoon, supervisors
3:28 am
corey smith on behalf of the housing coalition. looking at the traditional numbers we know the middle-income has been - we appreciate supervisor president london breed's attempt to try to create housing for the firefighters and teachers and the emt and folks like that we fear the uncertainty and kraelgs by moving the gold post will have less affordable housing that is the goal of everybody in the chamber we support the tupgz and hope we have a final resolve that has everybody coming out with a thumbs-up. >> it is pressing good afternoon, supervisors and first of all, let's put to rest this kind of legislation by proposing to house people are 140 ami will house teachers a reason the
3:29 am
teachers union didn't allow that kind of argument that continuance i support it that will give london breed and the city an opportunity to turn offer a new leaf when it comes to develop this means actually advocating so for the community as opposed to to advocating for the interests of developers that is what we've seen for the last two years from london breed on this issue since the original give away this legislation seeks to address what that means during the time before the next hearing i hope is actual communication i feel for the folks that took time off from work they knew they would introduce send an e-mail to gus that is basic requirement to engage in respect dialogue i want to echo the sentiment we need a public hearing to get
3:30 am
community input on this let's work together to insure we have had more affordable housing on divisadero and fillmore not less thank you very much. >> (clapping.) >> seeing no other members of the public public comment is closed. and thank you all for your testimony and i hope that by may first, we'll fourthed something not more hard working to do is there a motion to continue to may 1st. >> so moved. >> >> made by supervisor tang and supervisor jeff sheehy without objection that will be heard on may 1st madam clerk please read item no. 2 - item no. 2 - 170202 green building code - requirements for installation of electric vehicle chargers. >> in new buildings or those
3:31 am
under 0 going major alterations. >> supervisor tang. >> thank you very much and thank you for your patience to all the staff that working hard on this readiness ordinance existed to talk about how we are trying to really led the charger and you push the envelope for electrical vehicle adoption what we're seeing is demand is growing in the bay area around electrical vehicles and what we need to do is so get our infrastructure ready - to set
3:32 am
3:33 am
great example for the region and the rest of country lastly about before i i'm going to turn it over to the department of the environment debbie want to thank everyone that worked hard on the issue and, of course, deb reaping and others from the mayor's office (calling names) so san francisco, california hopefully one day people like me can go ahead and drive an electrical vehicle here in san francisco so with that, i'm going to turn it over to director ralph yes, ma'am e he will 101 for the major amendments and after that have to continue to the following land use and transportation committee hearing. >> thank you supervisor tang thank you to the land use and transportation committee for
3:34 am
hearing us today, i want to start by pressing my gratitude to mayor ed lee and supervisor tang for your leadership and partnership working for what i consider to be a bold move but a move that reflects great stakeholders engagement, 234rek9 and meaningfulness when it comes to the future of electrical vehicles here in san francisco so what i'm going to do a little tag team with gary hooper we'll set the context why we need to do that now and who is at table and united states of america u i'm going to turn it over to barry that will talk about was that the ordinance structure does and the amendments to make adjustment to that framework in that ordinance so as you can see san francisco has very bold carbon dioxide goals in fact, we've pledged as a city and the
3:35 am
supervisors signed off to reduce our co2 emissions 80 percent 0 below 1990 by 2050 the point to get where we are to percent below our 1990 levels need to set up policies today that pave the way for that achievement in the future so the way we talk about how we'll get there is with the very simple climate action zero water 50/50 percent of trips in constitutional modes they're our transit first get people out of cars walking and biking to streets and make that easy for people to ride transit parking minimums all the things we had to get to 50 and beyond one
3:36 am
hundred a 100 percent renewal electrical for one hundred renewable and looking all the other source of energy i'll come back to that in a minute and roots how we'll heal the planet by tearing up concrete by our sidewalk ambassadors program that supervisor tang is to active on is also using our composite on land to actually increase oil fertility and skewer carbon that is one element has to do with are transportation fuel so if in 100 percent renewable energy we'll have to get off the fuel have to switch in natural from diesel to gallon that is about how to get off of gasoline vehicles and electrify the transportation system so california why now
3:37 am
california as supervisor tang said leads the nation we're a state that totally gets the need to buy electrical vehicles and san francisco bay area lead california we have a resimply audience in the san francisco bay area our governor is very gun hoe on electrical vehicles and set very ambitious goals for the state i too said these that to meet the statewide we'll have to get off of gasoline and diesel so have many vehicles on the roads electrical vehicles they're looking ways to do it is interesting to be mandated that 22 percent of all new sales of vessels in san francisco by 205022 percent will be electric
3:38 am
the state is setting goals and happen at the local levels what will we do in san francisco to be ready for the vengeanvessels supervisor tang that figures out out how to drive an electrical vehicle we need convenient charging with the costs of electrical vehicles down we need a birth range of the electrical vehicles and the variety of choices not everybody wants a tiny such an some people want a station wagon or a truck we need choices those are the barriers this is my favorite slide it is one thing i didn't but i want to show you we've been hearing if or from people concerned how do you know the demand is there you're asking us how do we know there as demand for the electrical vehicles
3:39 am
well, that is a slide i saw in a presentation in norway that talked about the norwegian experience in the uptick of vehicles it is for many years it was flat until about nodding when the curve up took sdraufk so what happened been 19090 and 2010 all the things in san francisco, california we're doing it you stop there they work all the policies we put in place infrastructure incentives and hov lanes maybe not enough what happens in norway about to happen here next year that is at car companies kicked in started to give the customers a wide variety of electrical vehicles so we've been preps in california this legislation will make sure that the buildings
3:40 am
that are built in the future are ev ready when the car companies come we know about we'll be ready to take advantage and meet those bold goals we have as a city and as a state and frankly, we're not alone not something that crazy san francisco is coming up with we have cities crossed the bay area they do it defendant their housing stock is different we're sharing information and workouting to come up to meet the needs so we've been working for a year and a half - this is the variety of people that come to the there is a motion on the table we've been working with affordable housing and residential builder and
3:41 am
large-scale developers and contributions and the i e w to the gratitude of the department of building inspection this will be implement and able to understand that and make that work and make that feasible we've that working closely with tom hui and ron and all of them come to the table with us to bring to you a piece of policy that is meaningful that is measured that is cost effective and that will set us up for the future we want and finally i want to say that two commissioned have voted on that the building inspection commission and the commission on the environment support it unanimously you have those resolutions in usual packet we're proud of their support an indication how much effort into this piece of legislation
3:42 am
so with that, i'm going to turn it over to my colleague barry who will go through how this works and what the amendments mean today and happy to answer questions. >> ms. raphael with the wide range of stakeholder and effected parties you k34ug9 with did that include the san francisco apartment association. >> they expressed concerns or less your intention to answer the concerns their concerns will be addressed ♪ ordinance and baraka speak about the specification of their concerns >> so you'll, recommending to the sponsor of this legislation some. >> i think we can work through the concerns and see if the
3:43 am
amendments are needed i'm not sure we'll need to change the ordinance to address their concerns. >> okay. i look forward to hearing more. >> great. >> good afternoon members of the board show i precede. >> go ahead, please. >> so the ordinance as proposed as supervisor tang outlined was focused on flexibility and being both programmatic about the up front costs at the new construction as well as planning for the future so the core of that is a requirement that electrical service. >> sir identify yourself for the record. >> i'm barry with the department of the environment. >> so the core of the ordinance the service needs to
3:44 am
be sized to provide for seaman's charging at 20 percent of parking spaces with that level of service be able to expand the parking using charging management stmgz systems in the future to up and including all parking spaces in the facility sthep within the building electrical distribution system the ordinance requires 10 percent of spaces your understanding as easy as possible to a charger and find a fuel credibility of 40 ams from the relevant electrical panel to the individual that parking spaces the ordinance proposed for an additional 10 percent of spaces more a conduit to up size the circuits as desired and again, provision for remaining
3:45 am
space for capable of charging and a summary outlining it in more details in this slide a recommended amendment to the ordinance but there are summarized in the slide with the striking. >> at the risk of wasting more paper do you have a copy because those screens are ancient are completely we can't see them. >> i don't have a copy. >> the first slide that deb was showing from norway i'm sure everybody in the audience and watching that on tv can see it but the 3 of us that makes the decision can't. >> i salute you for ahsha safai paper. >> i have a laptop i could loan that. >> you don't want to give me
3:46 am
our laptop. >> we'll continue this item anyway we'll visit this again but wander we can't use our screens. >> thank you. i apologize for that. >> the the biggest substantive change striking the flexibility requirement for the 10 percent of spaces to eliminate the requirement for any conduit or full credibility for the spaces and then for all remaining spaces rather than rather than an electrical design for each parking space the ordinance will require a programmaticly installing the conduits 3 could extend the worry and adds spaces for an electrical panel for the charges and charging that and the other change suggested
3:47 am
categories that are suggested to the ordinance is addressing a provision to the environment code that requires the owner or the homeowners association in the building to annually notify the tenants of the availability of electrical vehicle chargers they'll have the opportunity to come to terms on installing an a.d. charger if they deserve with the consideration and up front for all stakeholders it has been cost we partnered with the city of oakland and fremont to develop this proposal and have a consultant shared between the 3 cities proud the cost effective reports looking at the sensitive category of smaller development prairie affordable housing and the range of additional parking spaces of
3:48 am
such facilities two scenarios one with 10 parking spaces and another one with 60 if you were to require that 20 percent of spaces were turnkey then or 10 spaces that will be two turn could he an $800 incredible costs you scale up to 60 parking spaces that is 12 turnkey spaces again, this is incremental costs of $10 for parking spaces one and 75 what was a number of stakeholders were careful to point out in newer and larger buildings that have a greater amount of parking a typical of housing we rarely see them in
3:49 am
town you have a considerably more opportunity for electrical extra for transforms on the customer side of the electrical meters the run of conduit extends from the interest would individual parking spaces increases and, of course, it is going to be professional union labor to build this large property and there is a consideration there so overall cost is large for those facilities we apologize there are a number of provision for the control of costs directly address the concerns that were raised by a number of stakeholders including the apartment of association and really fall into two category one for new construction where the design of the building and the provision of electrical extra in the building you'll provide electrical infrastructure in a building but
3:50 am
one element that can be unpretty bad e predictable in the costs the cost of upgrading the portion of grid specific for your service is something the developer can bear the cost of it but the if the utility has to make upgrades it is not related to project size so consistent with the green building code that will maintain a cap of $400 per parking space so at the same level with the existing electrical vehicle and more for residential buildings one maintaining that same cost cap the upgrade of service necessary and second the
3:51 am
ordinance for existing buildings only applicable to a major objection this depiction has been in the green building code of projects 25 thousand expedite that includes the significant structural work and is defined in separate requirements administrative code by the department of building inspection but consistently. >> i don't know if you saw the chronicle piece with the seismic safety program for soft story buildings and the apparent rate of compliance projects but that i assume some of those projects might trigger this and have you done any thinking whether or not this will increase the costs of seismic retrofit and running
3:52 am
into one another and our thoughts. >> a fantastic question the third criteria is for the emotion navigating in addition to the significant structural work needs to be significant alterations for mechanical or electrical and plumbing so common in a seismic retrofit project to pull the permit for the schematic retrofit and not entail that goods to the other buildings. >> there is another public goal this board has i think unanimously supported that is we're seeing it mostly in seismic retrofits that is the inclusion of accessary dwellings or unit which still would entail pulling plumbing and electrical so i think there is - we should
3:53 am
have some i think careful thoughts about the goals if this only applies to new construction i would not be asking those but careful in 2015 the city mandated what is - if you read the article the reason we have half or appears as september is 50 percent is non-compliance not because people don't want to do something about it but the probable cause active costs at the same time, we're incentive listing the affordable housing in those projects so it should be talking to the people i'm not sure ms. raphael the people that be effected were consulted as
3:54 am
you represented or at least that is kind of the sense i've gotten over the last 96 hours. >> precede. >> thank you, sir in in addition let's say the threshold has been crossed and cost consideration there are two or three outs with regards to the ordinance one is this ordinance alone can't trigger an upgrade to the electrical service so which will be an important consideration and discussion where you're addressing accessary dwellings to a seismic retrofit project written that will be a typical for that scale of projects to include changing the actual structure for the grid and so what this ordinance in those cases where if the amount of charging is required for new construction requires a upgrade
3:55 am
of electrical service not within the scope the project allows to scale back for the e b charging for that to accommodate even if it means no charging the second provision where a residential project may petition to the director of the building department will constitute a hardship they can allow an be alternative pathway and third this is specifically for not exclusively for residential by residential and non-residential a finding the infeasibility because of state has requirements for excess ability when provides for electrical vehicle chasing and the existing buildings generally not been with future accessibility
3:56 am
requirements in mind when not possible to meet the 0 possibilities we have exemption for all parking space if necessary to not cause on undue hardship. >> what does that cost for me to prove that. >> there is a professional cost similar for the cruel design as well. >> that concludes my presentation. a more detailed summary of the adjusted amendment and i'll be happy to answer any questions you may have. >> supervisor peskin if i may to our point we reached out to the apartment association as we did to all stakeholders there engagement became much more focused end of last week, we would be happy between now and next week to sit down and discuss in all
3:57 am
the detail that is necessary to see if amendments are needed when we looked at their ask it didn't look like there were amendments needed but if there are we'll bring them to you. >> i don't want to put words in your mouth and have present of representation but i'm under the envision they're under the envision that applies to new construction and didn't release that until it popped up on the intersect thursday evening. >> i can't say whether that came from and say we're happy to more than happy to sit down and go through step by step every concern and see if, in fact, the ordinance is unnecessarily problematic. >> not only on behalf of the the apartment association but saying that on behalf of the tenants because to the extent
3:58 am
that the city is telling those folks hey mandate retrofit and adding things those costs capitalized costs can urban design passed through and raised rents so this is a complicated formula that has my attention more than 2050. >> noted. >> thank you okay through the chair so you know certainly i did see the correspondence coming in regarding the apartment association and this is a concern you spoke to we had the significant go renovation i want to reiterate that on page 4 it talks about the definition of major alternative sf virmentd clarifies the ordinance is applicable to green building requirements since 2008 as mentioned that is already
3:59 am
requiring the lead infiltrate or better in those buildings so i think you heard about the very exception that were made to the extent you would not be providing electrical vehicle chargers in certain situations so i will, happy to follow up with sf environment and other stakeholder in the issues they brought to us but perhaps at the time may be go to public comment and hear from the members of the public on any issued. >> i'm happy to adopt those and continue a week you'll work out it out and why not open up for public comment first speaker please. >> good afternoon, supervisors brooke with the coalition for better hours while we applaud the efforts as environmentally concerned partners in san
4:00 am
francisco we do point to this as a failure of progress never we approached by anyone from either the st. joseph's the mayor's office by the commission about this. >> we're concerned about the issues relating to people or to folks who are doing go seismic to retrofit only those the believes and how to respect that we'd like this to be continued are biefkd whatever to put aside to have that opportunity we should have had to address this issue beforehand and never during the process were we reached out by anyone that is a failure and shouldn't be allowed to go forward without our input
4:01 am
since the residential housing industry is a huge part of this legislation thank you. >> thank you, mr. turner. >> next speaker, please. >> game-changer supervisor peskin and members of the board i'm the director of public policy for chair point and pleased to support this legislation that has been sponsored by the mayor and supervisor tang that is the latter electrical vehicle network over 33 thousand charging ports within the - every 3 seconds a driver stops at a station and because of that be anchor point have driven many millions and active in the development of green building standards throughout california for electrical vehicle since the original statewide for a electrical vehicle or pe b readiness codes were adopted
4:02 am
that legislation build on statewide readiness standards and supports the climate action stream by expanding assess to clean alternative infrastructure and supporting the g h g of 40 percent blow 1990 levels in 2050 that will address the long term demand for several reasons it includes the measures to accommodate the future for existing buildings undergoing the retrofits and supports others in the long term i agree with director raphael plan and simple pb are the demand is growing and california currently close to reaching ousted 25 percent of sales those are hire workplace the city of san francisco
4:03 am
the u.s. pb sales had their highest on record and 2017 is way above pace and we'll see that pg&e projects the number of - >> sir, thank you you can submit the rest of our comments we say to diverse everybody the same amount of time thank you very much. >> i apologize. >> next speaker, please. >> good afternoon, supervisors my name is moreen i'm the director of a nonprofit called charge across town to get supervisor katie tang into an electrical vehicle and all across california we start as a project with the san francisco indictment back in 2012 helping to promote electrical vehicles
4:04 am
in structure in commercial and residential buildings and found we were a little too soon for the chicken and egg problem not enough demand and with the developers and landlord we refocused our efforts and focused on the consumer end our goal to educate the consumers about electrical vehicles and the technology to continue to push forward for california environmental laws as you may know and the city knows our great mayor knows san francisco is the ev adoption and awareness we ought pays the rest of country however, charging is a huge hurdle to ease adoption we hear that over and over as we talk to executors across the state here in inform 0 thirty percent of our folks live lack of charging stations and charging options as
4:05 am
a hurdle to owning a vehicle again, we talked to homeowners and part-time dwellers 90 percent of ev charging is done at home if keeping you informed they canned plug in they'll not buy the card we're here to help to advance the adoption of ev thank you. >> thank you. >> next speaker, please. >> hello chair peskin jed for 350 is he port this legislation and thank you for all for their work on this we do a lot of work with the bay area quality management supervisor jeff sheehy is a board member on and they actually just are approving their climate excuse me - their protection strategy for 2050 along the 7 sectors of the
4:06 am
economy called out by ab 32 d cashing is absolutely critical of the climate protection strategy where we need to be in 2050 the cost in the presentation for 20 percent is so low compared to the cost of construction and the property values are the highest in the country housing is a big profit so much it is in the new newspaper in other cities they're the property taxes are although i actually oppose those amendments weakening this legislation no reason we need to weaken that legislation at all eventually we'll be 100 percent fossil fuel for transportation the region is moving there the bay area air quality management is pushing us there so the idea
4:07 am
we're going slow that in some way a baffling to me we'll be 100 percent electric and some alternate fouls supervisor tang is a caution protective eerie trust for full renovation are not too loss for construction we need to get this done and currently reaching to the - >> >> next speaker, please. >> good afternoon, supervisors i'm the zero mission structure project manager for the development and are you - this exists to help to accelerate - i'm here to support the readiness ordinance rapid uptick of the
4:08 am
electrical vehicle is key to meeting governor brown's idealogy by 2050 that is coming fast on the roads about 200 and 85 thousand of them and we're not that far way of from 2025 that is critical in getting to the climatic change and the ev readiness ordinance will enhance the charging stations and there assess in the multiple unit dwellings and workplace charging that is a 92 must if we achieve that adoption and also will likely result in lower costs than for retrofitting the buildings in the future and finally you know california
4:09 am
is a leader in emission technology and doesn't the to the environment and san francisco is on the cutting-edge so we applaud what the city is doing and encourage the adoption of this important ordinance thank you. >> good afternoon, commissioners chair peskin joel koppel a part-time planning commissioner my day job it is the construction city i take care of the constitutional energy illustration we're excited to see that i want to talk about the construction portion of why this legislation is a no-brainer. >> for the future then to do
4:10 am
it after the fact this completely makes sense our history is involved in the discussion and happy to be in full support of ordinance. >> thank you, commissioner. >> next speaker, please. >> good afternoon again koegd existed to be here to support in ordinance it was to make sure that san francisco adequately prepares for the vital challenges we know that lies ahead one of the gold to reduce the photo copy that means k345i7b9 new housing to make it - the data consistently shows the electrical vehicle is growing we want to acknowledge the hard work and a pleasure to work with them since last november they opt to marry their
